Amer­i­can League

Cleve­land 8, Kansas City 4: Af­ter their 22-game win­ning streak ended Fri­day, the In­di­ans made sure they didn’t start a los­ing streak as Fran­cisco Lin­dor had three hits and Ed­win En­car­na­cion home­red. Car­los Car­rasco won his 16th game, match­ing team­mates Trevor Bauer and Corey Klu­ber. The Tribe’s win cou­pled with Min­nesota’s loss gave the In­di­ans back-to-back AL Cen­tral ti­tles. Jason Kip­nis will be ac­ti­vated off the DL and will make his de­but in cen­ter field on Sun­day.

Hous­ton 8, Seat­tle 6: Dal­las Keuchel worked six in­nings be­fore Joe Mus­grove put out a fire in the eighth as the Astros re­duced their magic num­ber for clinch­ing the AL West to one, pend­ing Satur­day’s late Rangers-An­gels game. Car­los Bel­tran fin­ished 3-for-4 with a dou­ble and a pair of RBIs for Hous­ton.

Bos­ton 3, Tampa Bay 1: Rick Por­cello took a shutout into the eighth in­ning and the Red Sox stayed hot, win­ning their third straight. The Red Sox also got a solo home run and an RBI sin­gle from Mookie Betts.

Toronto 7, Min­nesota 2: Josh Don­ald­son home­red twice and Jose Bautista broke out of a slump for a three-hit night as the Blue Jays slowed the Twins’ wild-card run. It was the 14th multi-homer game of Don­ald­son’s ca­reer and the fourth time he’s done so this sea­son.

L.A. Dodgers 3, Wash­ing­ton 2: Cody Bellinger tied the NL’s rookie record for home runs with his 38th and the Dodgers held on to beat the Na­tion­als. One more and Bellinger will break the tie with Wally Berger (1930) of the Bos­ton Braves and Frank Robin­son (1956) of the Cincinnati Reds.

Chicago Cubs 4, St. Louis 1: Al­bert Almora Jr. went 3-for-4 with two RBIs while Kyle Hen­dricks car­ried a shutout into the eighth in­ning as the Cubs won their fifth in a row. Cubs catcher Will­son Con­tr­eras will ap­peal a two-game sus­pen­sion for “in­ap­pro­pri­ate ac­tions” in the fifth in­ning Fri­day when he and John Lackey (also fined) dis­puted a call by um­pire Jor­dan Baker.

Cincinnati 2, Pitts­burgh 1: Jesse Winker home­red and Sal Ro­mano pitched a ca­reer-high eight shutout in­nings for the Reds, who are now 12-6 against Pitts­burgh this sea­son with one game re­main­ing be­tween the teams.
